One of the more omnipresent remixing teams on the British house scene of the 1990s, K-Klass emerged in the late '80s, founded by Andy Williams and Carl Thomas after the demise of their previous band Interstate (who had played with 808 State on the early house scene). The Welsh duo added Paul Roberts and Russ Morgan, and began recording with 1990s Wildlife EP. Late the following year, K-Klass' single "Rhythm Is a Mystery" reached the Top Five and they began their continual residence in the club charts with later singles "Don't Stop," "Let Me Show You," and "What You're Missing," from their debut album, 1993's Universal.
By the mid-'90s, K-Klass had begun to move away from the original blueprint of British house and towards a more mainstream, song-oriented approach -- though one which embraced trance, nu-disco and even ambient-house. K-Klass remixes of Whitney Houston, Blondie, Frankie Knuckles, M People, Lulu, Bizarre Inc., and Bobby Brown became sizeable dancefloor hits. The 1996 K-Klass LP, Remix and Additional Production, displayed their allegiance to post-production, perhaps to the detriment of their own recording career. ~ John Bush
